Thematically it makes no sense for a Pokemon whose entire purpose in life is to evolve, refuse evolution. There's only been TWO Eevee in the entire anime that have remained unevolved, and one of them was probably intended to be a Sylveon, but was changed in GF's development. The other was a one-shot character of the day.

With Pikachu, his refusal to evolve was a gimmick to keep him the mascot that the anime worked into his personality and backstory. And it's one of his defining traits, even if it's become more common for Pokemon to refuse evolution. Doesn't make sense with rando Eeevee doing it too.
